  Officials have tweaked questions on a new quiz used by the state of Ohio to catch phony income-tax returns.

Gary Gudmundson, a spokesman for the Ohio Department of Taxation, said Monday that the agency hopes to cut down on the questions that people can’t respond to because they are obscure or outside the realm of recent memory.

The move comes after some residents were puzzled by certain questions on the quiz.

The security survey is being used for the first time this year to make sure a tax return submitted in someone’s name is genuine and not an attempt by a scam artist to collect a refund check.

Gudmundson says the department also has adjusted standards for determining who has to take the quiz for their return to be processed.
